BOOK EXCERPT:

Don't let the title of this book fool you. This medical study guide is packed with information. Random Musings earned its title to reflect the random nature of the occurrence of illness and the random nature of questions that medical students, resident doctors and specialist doctors must answer during the course of their training, re-certification examinations, and practice. Because the most popular formats for assessments are multiple choice and short answer questions, candidates must learn to think on their feet literally and precisely. This means the candidate must have facts at their fingertips. Some facts are popular and accessible, while others occur in the blind spot of knowledge. Random Musings aims to highlight the facts that are not "in your face" but that are important. Filled with definitions and descriptions of everything from dependency to blood alcohol levels, behavior therapy, and delirium, author Daniel Okoro has compiled a thorough review of terms, diagnoses, definitions, and ideas that are important in the field of medicine and psychiatry.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Aggression is a complex social behaviour with multiple causes. In psychology, as well as other social and behavioural sciences, aggression refers to behaviour between members of the same species that is intended to cause pain or harm. Aggression takes a variety of forms among humans and can be physical, mental, or verbal. Aggression should not be confused with assertiveness however, although the terms are often used interchangeably. There are two broad categories of aggression. These include hostile, affective, or retaliatory aggression and instrumental, predatory, or goal-oriented aggression. Empirical research indicates that there is a critical difference between the two, both psychologically and physiologically. Some research indicates that people with tendencies toward affective aggression have lower IQs than those with tendencies toward predatory aggression. If only considering physical aggression, males tend to be more aggressive than females. This new book gathers the latest research from around the world in this field.
